Paleo Meatball Sub



Paleo Meatball Sub /

Meatball sub sandwiches used to be a favorite of mine, before I went grain free.I needed to make a paleo- friendly version. This is really a “go to” meal for me. And can be made relatively fast, if I have the meatballs or bread made in advance. There is a link you can click on below the recipe for my grain free garlic bread shown in photo. It is a fast, easy, grain free, 1 to 2 serving, bread you can  make very quickly. It is made with flax meal, or can be made with a coconut flour option, for those who can’t tolerate flax. I usually have it  baking in the oven while I’m making the meatballs and sauce. And the bread is done before the meatballs are done.

    Are the nutrition facts for the whole sandwich or just the sauce and meatballs? Looks really yummy! Thanks!

      Hi Jenny, the nutrition data is for the the meatballs and sauce, and the nutritional data for the bread is on the bread recipe page. The bread is only adds 1 g net carbs. If you are counting net carbs. I will work on putting those together and in the post, so it is easier to see the nutritional data for the whole sandwich.
